Two window cleaners in Vienna were left clinging for their lives after the platform they were on tilted violently to one side while they were 144m above ground.

The pair were washing the DC Tower 1, the tallest building in Austria's capital Vienna when the incident happened.



Despite being stuck on the 48th floor of the 60-storey building in strong winds, the pair were unhurt.

They were rescued by 30 firefighters who secured the platform with extra cables, The Guardian reported.
